I have recently bought a new computer with windows XP as opposed to 98 I had before. I have a n old Palm 100 with all my addresses backed up on the old computer. On getting the new machine I found I didn't have a 9 pin serial socket other than for the monitor, only USB ports so I bought a serial to USB adaptor which with difficulty I have managed to instal. I have also installed the palm software however I am unable to perform a hotsync to transfer my lists from the handheld to the computer. Can anyone help?

There could be a number of issues :

Firewall is giving conflicts
If you go to the sync manager you have to choose another port (usb in stead of serial)
